Overview of the company ICOM

Today's ICOM (Inoue COMunications), based in Hirano, Osaka, Japan, has its origins in Inoue Electronic, founded in 1954 by Tokuzo Inoue, JA3FA. With the change of name to ICOM Inc. in 1964, the company specialized in the development and production of amateur radios and launched the FDAM-1, the first AM transceiver for the 6 m band.
From these beginnings, which are modest from today's point of view, ICOM has developed into one of the global players in the radio industry over the past decades, alongside other competitors such as Yaesu, Alinco and Kenwood.
